AcDisplay has moved! Old version will not be updated anymore:

#AcDisplay FAQ: If you have any suggestions about FAQ / new common questions write them in comments.

Q: How can I join beta testing to take a look at future features?
A: At this moment there's no beta testing yet. 

Q: How can I uninstall this app?
A: Go to Settings > Security > Device Administrators and uncheck AcDisplay. You can now uninstall AcDisplay normally.

Q: What is active mode?
A: Active mode uses the device's sensors to wake your device up when you need it. This works great if you want to pull your device from your pocket and get a quick glimpse at the notifications you've received. Active mode doesn't keep the CPU running so you shouldn't see a big difference in battery consumption.

Q: How can I hide the annoying «Welcome to Immersive mode» popup?
A: Unfortunately, Android is the one showing that popup... If you know a workaround for that, please let us know - patches are also welcome! Xposed users can use “Don’t Panic!” module as a workaround.

Q: What a nice app! How can I donate?
A: Oh, thank you! You can use PayPal or Bitcoins (1GYj49ZnMByKj2f6p7r4f92GQi5pR6BSMz) to donate. 😃

Q: Why was the interface changed?
A: In order to avoid legal trouble with a certain company, a redesign was necessary to make the two products distinct. You'll hopefully like the new design better, as it's more streamlined and is aimed at giving you the best possible experience!

Q: How can I disable the permanent notifications when active mode or the lockscreen are enabled?
A: The notification is necessary to ensure AcDisplay isn't killed by the system. You can, however, hide it if it annoys you. To do so, long press AcDisplay's notification, tap «App info» and uncheck «Show notification». Once this is done, all notification from AcDisplay will be hidden. As a side effect, the test notification option will not function anymore.

Q: I want to see pattern / password lock in AcDisplay. Any chance to get it?
A: Not a big one. AcDisplay supports any of Android's lock screens... Reinventing the wheel would be silly when you can simply use what Android already has, especially considering that it has been tested and improved ever since the beginning of Android, and it's more secure than anything an app can offer.

Q: The blacklist isn't working! Or how do I use the blacklist?
A: To use the blacklist, you must enable the app and configure it as well. To enable it, simply press the switch button. To configure it for the app, press the app's name and the configuration screen will open.

Q: What's the different between «Hide» and «Silent» in the blacklist?
A: «Hide» completely ignores the notification. «Silent» won't wake your device, but the notification will still be displayed if AcDisplay is shown somehow (lockscreen or another notifications).

Q: I can see a typo / mistake in the translation!
A: You can easily help out with that. Join the app's page on crowdin and suggest a better translation. Thanks!

Q: When will AcDisplay be available for older devices/versions of Android?
A: While it is understandable that you want the AcDisplay awsomeness on your own device, the truth is that it’s really difficult. Most of the features depend on programming APIs that were just released Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

 Hey man all you need to do is go to your default lock screen and just select none on it. That should fix it :D

Is it possible to use the sensors on the droid turbo and moto x to wake?

If I recall from another post, it is not possible to use the IR sensors that are present on the Droid Turbo and Moto X 2014.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and have been using AcDisplay for a while and love it! However, I just updated to Lollipop and now the lock screen option has disappeared from AcDisplay. It no longer functions as a lock screen. What happened?

Здравствуйте! У меня Samsung i9500, прошивка Lollipop. И каждый после перезагрузки программа требует админ.разрешение. Подскажите в чём может быть проблема того, что разрешение слетает каждый раз после перезагрузки? На KitKat было всё ок.

Hello! I have a Samsung i9500, firmware Lollipop. Each program requires a reboot after the admin. permission. Tell me what could be the problem that the permission slips every time after reboot? On the KitKat was all ok.

Add a comment...
Love the app Artem.

Just thought I'd point out something:

In Lollipop, an app is still "selected" on the lockscreen despite the touch gesture being removed. In Kit Kat, when your finger left an app icon, the text notification for that would disappear, however, in Lollipop, this still remains after your finger has left the app icon. I've done a terrible job explaining this but I hope you get it.

D'oh! Thanks! Love the app.

About this community

AcDisplay is a new way of handling notifications in Android. It will let you know about new notifications by showing a minimal, beautiful screen, allowing you to open them directly from the lock screen. And if you want to see what\'s going on, you can simply take your phone out of your pocket to view all the latest notifications, in a similarly pleasing and minimalistic manner.
Is it possible to use a custom wallpaper for AC display?

I have a Galaxy S4 with Lollipop 5.0.1.  I installed AcDisplay yesterday, seemed to work fine.  But this morning it said AcDisplay had stopped working, and it continually looped displaying the Report, Wait or Ok dialog.  scrolling up the screen.  It would not respond and I had to restart the phone to clear it.

#AcDisplay  v3.3.3 is rolling out and is avalable on GitHub ( ). Due to a complete lack of time the changelog is small:
- Latest translations from the
- Fix doubling notifications once again (possibly including Textra)
- Minor fixes and improvements.

The screen popping on unlocked after ACDisplay shuts the screen off is still a thing on my 5.1 Nexus 5.

The screen still turns on even though Notification is of lower priority than the one set under the app's settings. Any one else face this?

Z3 just updated to 5.0.2 when in the car noticing the screen coming on way more (with active mode on) then it did as if its become more sensitive to movements.  Also had a bug where the screen comes on and cant decide whether or not to go to acdisplay or stock lock screen and the colours seem to bug out and screen flickers significantly until the app crashes.

Have you tried reinstalling the app?

Is it possible to create an option for a custom selected wallpaper? Because I am using kustom live wallpaper now and it really doesn't go well with acdisplay, but AcDisplay is honestly the best lock screen I have ever used. Please add an option for a custom wallpaper...

You could potentially hack around it but it wouldn't be pretty (even though some others do it)

Does not unlock Galaxy S6 when fingerprint lock is being bypassed by a smart lock trusted place or device. Works fine when swipe only lockscreen is selected, any hope of fixing this?
